There is no denying the FACT that Liverpool need to bring in another striker (or two) in the summer to fix our goal scoring problems. Our biggest downfall this season has been a lack of goals and there is no way we can fix that problem with the current players we have.
Suarez is trying be all means to score the goals together with Gerrard but they need help. Andy Carroll is meant to be the one helping chip in with the goals but sad to say he has been a complete waste.
These thoughts are also echoed by Liverpool legend Mark Lawrenson who is suggesting that Liverpool would be better served next season by getting in Newcastle’s Demba Ba than stick around with Carroll.
Lawrenson said in The Mirror, “With Steven Gerrard released to get forward, if they can bring in a top goalscorer to play alongside (and occasionally instead of) Luis Suarez, they’ll have plenty of options, and look a different team.
Whether they have the money to do that is a different story.
But if not, then they might have to go to Newcastle and offer them Andy Carroll plus some cash for Demba Ba.”
If we could bring in someone else for Carroll in the summer, I would be very happy as this 35 million experiment on Carroll has not worked. And what is frustrating is that it is hard to see it working. We have seen some glimpses of the Suarez – Carroll – Gerrard combination working well but it is not consistent enough. Yes, some may say let’s give it one more season but unfortunately it is one season too many, We can not afford to finish 7th again next season. It is desperate times like this that need drastic actions!
